Interesting SOS Podcast released today with YouTube synth historian Alex Ball discussing how he made his terrific ARP documentary. Worthy of a listen or two.

Excellent, although he's obviously got an Axxe to grind ;)

Big fan of Alex - if you're into synths, music and synth history, his YouTube channel is well worth a follow... :thumbup:

I hope you all enjoyed the podcast as much as I did making it! Alex was one of the first people I suggested for an interview and I was delighted that I had the opportunity to chat with him in detail. He's sickeningly talented and I hate him! :lol:
